FAST, CLEAN SUNSCREEN
Wipe out goopy suntan lotion. Pre-moistened sunscreen wipes, a favorite of golfers, road crews and law officers, are now available to gardeners and beach bunnies alike. Spwipes towelettes with SPF 30 are packed in thin foil pouches easily stashed in pockets and wallets. Tear the packet open, unfold the wipe and swipe on non-greasy lotion that offers UVA/UVB protection 30 times longer than unprotected skin.
WHERE TO BUY: Spwipes are available in two sizes for 79 cents to $1.99 at Target and other stores.
BACK TO THE BEACH
We've all tried to lug coolers up Mount Baldy. Never again. Towel Down is a boon for the Dunes -- a beach tote that unfolds into a 40-inch-by-70-inch towel. Pack pop, snacks, etc., scale that sandhill then unfold the bag and relax. Tuck personal items into the Velcro corners for safekeeping and as weights on windy days. This velour wonder also doubles as a gym bag, diaper bag and backpack. Machine washable.
WHERE TO BUY: Call (877) 394-6103 or visit www.beachstore.com.
